Share

Cultural Heritage, Resilience and Sustainable Urban Regeneration are the focus of the session “Re-Inventing Heritage for Sustainable Urban Regeneration’, which will be held the morning of the third day conference from 9:30 to 11:00 CET. The session will explore how cultural heritage has the potential to enable new forms of collaboration and cultural production, to support cities to cope with future challenges, creating the conditions to carry out sustainable adaptive reuse projects. Participants will also discuss how cultural heritage can contribute to strengthening the resilience of communities. In this contest, ROCK experience with sustainable urban regeneration will be presented by Erica Albarello. The speech will focus on Turin’s views on how heritage, culture and creativity are relevant for the sustainable development of the City, specifically looking at the examples of adaptive heritage reuse initiatives co-developed together with local community groups. Cristina Garzillo, will co-moderate the session.

The 9th edition of the European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns  is co-organised by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability together with the City of Mannheim and it brings together local and regional leaders, European and international institutions and some of the brightest minds working on cutting edge research, businesses and the civil society to forge a more sustainable Europe.
